Cat owners now facing finesA research project on endangered species in the hammocks of North Key Largo uncovered an unwanted cast of video stars: Cats perched atop manmade woodrat nests.The cats are doing the things that cats do when they hunt, said Jeremy Dixon, manager of the Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge.Its not the fault of the cats, Dixon said. Its the fault of owners who allow their cats to trespass into the refuge, or people who dump cats on North Key Largo. To protect the endangered Key Largo woodrat and the Key Largo cotton mouse, refuge staff will soon step up efforts to identify and possibly fine owners of cats trapped in protected lands. We will return the cats when possible, Dixon said this week. This is not about killing cats. Its about getting cats out of the refuge. A new informational campaign backed by nine conservation groups soon will be released to caution pet owners near North Key Largo. The first time we capture a [pet] cat, well give the owner the benefit of the doubt with a warning, Dixon said. The second time could mean a fine of $175, and could include a mandatory appearance in federal court. Mike Cove, a wildlife biologist working on his zoology doctorate at North Carolina State University, specializes in using sensortriggered remote video cameras to record animal activity.

Man drowns near police HQPolice dont suspect foul play in the Saturday death of James Hardin, 24, who drowned in a shallow retention pond on Jose Marti Drive in Key West. Department spokeswoman Alyson Crean said all signs point to accidental drowning, although the case remains open pending the results of an autopsy and toxicology screening from the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office. A memorial has popped up on the sidewalk next to the retention pond, adjacent to police headquarters and Horace OBryant Middle School. Friends are placing flowers and pictures of Hardin there. Hardins girlfriend, Priscilla Ceja, called him a grand man. They were coworkers at One Call Construction. He did just about everything, she said. He was such an amazing guy. He had so much energy and he was just so smart. You could ask him about anything and he would be able to tell you. She added, Hes very loving and hes super caring, always looking out for other people before himself. Hardin moved to Key West by himself at age 16 and began working at McDonalds on North Roosevelt Boulevard. In 2009, he won a national corporate essay and video contest and was selected to blog about the McDonalds AllAmerican Game in Miami, a launch pad to the NBA for prep basketball players. Among the greats who have played in McDonalds All-American games are Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

The recipients are prime examples of some of the best water treatment and conservation solutions in the state, Deputy DEP Director Chris Klena said at the agencys annual Focus On Change Seminar in Punta Gorda. The Keys winners were Monroe County for the Big Coppitt Key regional wastewater treatment plant, the city of Layton for its wastewater treatment plant and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District. Each year, the department presents awards for wastewater and potable water facilities that demonstrate excellence in operation, maintenance, innovative treatment, waste reduction and pollution prevention, recycling or other special achievements. Facilities go through a rigorous judging process, with every aspect of their operation scrutinized. ing with evidence.

He drowned. made structures placed by the refuge and its volunteers are being used by the endangered Keys rodents. The supplemental habitats are used by woodrats and mice, along with birds, snakes and short-tailed shrews, he said. And they attract cats apparently seeking whatever is inside the nests. Cove rotates the location of his cameras every few days among the hundreds of manmade habitats placed in the hammocks. This year, we recorded seven cats at the first 54 nests. In 2013, he recorded 284 nests and taped a total of two cats. Woodrats and cotton mice fall prey to owls, snakes and other native predators, Cove said. The problem is that cats are not supposed to be there. As a result, the woodrats and are predator-naive about a predator that is a rodent specialist. Since 2010, the refuge staff has captured 84 cats on refuge land. Some are repeat offenders; a couple were trapped up to eight miles from their owners homes. Cats found in the refuge generally are taken to the Key Largo Animal Shelter for identification through collar tags or microchips. ORCAT, a protection agency for Ocean Reef Clubs 300 resident cats, monitors the North Key Largo communitys feline population. We dont mind the refuge trapping cats but we have a big problem with killing cats, group cofounder David Ritz said. If they want to trap, we encourage them to place the traps near the woodrat nests not just outside our fence line, which has happened before, Ritz said. ORCAT believes the 200 free-roaming Ocean Reef cats rarely leave the property, Ritz said. There are probably 10 other reasons woodrats are in decline, rather than cats, he said.

He wants to winFrom Aldama, 1A Still no sign of Card Sound jumperNo sign living or dead has been seen of a man who said he planned to commit suicide at the Card Sound Bridge on Dec. 30. The disappearance of Homestead resident James Alan Dzidura, 38, has been listed as a missing-person case since the businessman sent a detailed text outlining his plans to leap from the 65-foot-high span while tied to a 40-pound weight. At this point, we have received no additional information, Miami-Dade Police spokesman Roy Rutland said Monday.There is nothing new to report, said Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin.Dzidura, married with children, vanished soon after he learned that MiamiDade detectives wanted to question him as a subject in a sexual-battery case. No arrest warrant was issued.After a relative received an e-mail that contained a suicide note from Dzidura, she contacted authorities. Monroe and Miami-Dade officers headed to the Card Sound Bridge, where they found Dziduras unlocked van with his wallet and identification. His cell phone was found on the bridge.A search by Sheriffs Office Dive Team members found a 40-pound dumbbell beneath the bridge. They found no trace of a body.The U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Ocean Reef Public Safety officers also searched the area extensively.Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay strongly suspects the suicide scene was staged to sidetrack investigators in the criminal case.

I have lived here for more than 20 years and it just never ends: The constant red cones and red barrels tearing up and rebuilding always. If it is not the electrical poles, it is the phone lines or the water lines or the sewage lines or the bike paths, etc. This is just an excuse for the neverending waste of the taxpayers money in more busy construction and endless maintenance afterward. It affects all of our businesses, the overall appearance to the tourists, our quality of life and home values. When will the politicians and the bureaucrats finish their never-ending wasteful projects? When will they deem it complete and acceptable development?

Erik Smith Grassy KeySymphony educating kidsI had a rare recent treat: I attended the 501 Years of Florida History Schools Music Education Program at the Tennessee Williams Theatre and was wowed by it. It has long been the dream of South Florida Symphony conductor Sebrina Alfonso to bring music education to Key Wests schools. In collaboration with the Monroe County School District, the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, the Do It For ME (music education) program founded by Marilynn Weber and the Artz Out Loud program, Sebrinas dream is being realized. The program she brought, with music commissioned from composer Robert Kerr, opened my ears as well as those of the children. The principal chair of each section introduced the members of the section and explained the relations among its instruments. I learned about instruments I thought I knew. After this introduction, I could recognize them as never before. Just as impressive as its musical quality was the programs concept, the story of Florida told through music, words and images. While the children provided the wind for ships sailing across the ocean, images of sailing ships appeared in a slide show that segmented them so each image recomposed into the image that followed. Part of the program was based on geography as well as history, so the children learned the stops on Flaglers East Coast Railway by seeing their names flashed in order, then calling out the names as they reappeared on the screen. Facts about William Bartrams drawings of Florida plants added both art and biology to the mix. The South Florida Symphony Orchestra now is part of a true collaboration. Sebrinas vision is to expand this program and take it on tour throughout South Florida. The program deserves to be taken on the road. There were no absences on the day when the students go to the symphony, and no wonder. Those of us who love the South Florida Symphony can only be thrilled to know that children are being exposed to symphonic music by this wonderful orchestra. Sebrinas commitment to bringing serious music to children in the midst of her real work putting on master concerts for the four communities the symphony serves is amazing. Sebrina is modeling for the children, the musicians and the community what it means to build audiences by taking listeners seriously.

Bondi says that Floridas leaders know our waterways best and, per an agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency, are implementing their own sound criteria that will safeguard our water from excess nitrogen and phosphorus pollution. What a load. As is typical of the right wing, she pretends the issue is about government overreach to divert our attention from her ridiculous position. She and Gov.

The commission met after press time Tuesday but any adopted changes require a second public hearing before becoming law. As it stands, for bars, restaurants and other venues that feature live music in the downtown mix of residential and commercial spaces, the rule is no amplified music louder than 75 decibels as measured from the property line. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley has proposed a number of technical modifications meant to make it easier for the citys Code Compliance officers to issue citations, which could result in a $500 fine. Noise which is plainly audible at a distance of 50 feet or more in any direction shall create a rebuttable presumption of violation, the law says.Weekley said the increased level of discretion is meant to take into account ambient noise. The wind could be blowing, dogs could be barking or other issues going on that could cause code not to get a good reading. Under the existing ordinance, churches are exempt from regulation but the new ordinance brings churches into the fold, exempting only bells and chimes. That provision is in response to neighborhood complaints about the Church of God of Prophecy at 815 Elizabeth St., which has amplified rock and roll music several nights each week.John Martini, who lives near the church, wrote a letter of support to commissioners, saying the exemption for churches has been a profound frustration. He calls the proposed new rules a gift to the residents of Key West. Weekley also pointed out that noise controls, or lack thereof, affect downtown residents and business owners, as evidenced by another letter of support for tighter rules from Edith Amsterdam, owner of the Curry Mansion, a Caroline Street guest house just off Duval Street. We pride ourselves in being good neighbors but we respectfully request that you look into the performance of outdoor amplified voices and music and grant us some relief, she wrote.Churches likely to be built into new regulationsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTGolfers shooting for a causeIts not uncommon for golf enthusiasts to play as many as 36 holes, or two full 18-hole rounds, in a day. Any more than that is bordering on overdoing it, especially for a game played outdoors and often in hot weather or other adverse conditions. But dont tell that to Donna VanKirk, Bob and Brad Belcaster or St. Peter Catholic Church pastor Tony Mullane, who all played at least five full rounds during last years inaugural Take Stock in Children Golfathon at Florida Keys Country Club in Marathon. The event was conceived by Belcaster, a Florida Keys Country Club member, and Centennial Bank South Florida President Teresa Condas as a means to boost Take Stock fundraising efforts in the Middle Keys. Take Stock is a mentoring program that includes 247 Keys kids from nine different middle and high schools. There were 56 new student contracts signed in 2013 alone. Every $17,000 raised is matched by the Florida Prepaid College Foundation and allows students who meet grade requirements, stay drugand alcohol-free and dont run afoul of the law to attend four years of college at any of Floridas 28 colleges and/or 12 state universities, with tuition and fees fully paid. The whole idea is to get people to donate so much per hole that you play. It all adds up in the end, said VanKirk, a Middle Keys charter captain who completed 202 holes. This years event begins at sunrise (roughly 6:50 a.m.) Saturday morning and lasts until sundown (roughly 6:30 p.m.) the same day. Participants golf as many holes as they can in that time period. VanKirk said golfers are allowed to hit two balls on par-three holes and only have to get the ball within six feet of the pin to complete a hole.VanKirk is a 13-handicap golfer and typically shoots in the midto upper-80s during a round. She said the golf-athon is a different animal.Last time, I didnt take my time. It was just get out of the cart and hit; get out of the cart and hit. It really wasnt too bad.

Although Gov. Rick Scotts appointed him to the Third District Court of Appeal on Oct. 18 and he took office late last year, Friday saw the Keys celebrate Scales appointment to the appellate bench the first-ever Monroe County resident to serve on the panel that hears appeals from Monroe and Miami-Dade counties. Friday at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West, Chief Judge Frank Shepherd, Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricky Polston and a slew of others welcomed Scales to office. Scales has a long history of involvement in the legal community and elsewhere, so the Keys should be proud that, after half a dozen times applying, he finally made it to the Third District. With his appointment, the Third District judges will convene for the first time ever in Key West on June 6. When appointed, Scales had his own law practice, and was of-counsel to the large GrayRobinson firm. He also was general counsel to the Florida Citrus Commission and sat on the state Commission on Ethics. Scales, a University of Florida graduate and proud Gator athletics booster, previously was a shareholder in the Lakeland law firm of Lane, Trohn, Bertrand & Vreeland, P.A. But he made his mark in Key West. Along with his time on the Commission on Ethics (2011 through 2013), Monroe County attorneys elected Scales to The Florida Bars Board of Governors. He served on the Bars Executive Committee for three years and chaired the Bars Legislation Committee and Citizens Forum. In 2006, then-Gov. Jeb Bush appointed him to the Florida Keys Community College board of trustees. He was reappointed by Charlie Crist and Rick Scott. Scales also served, from 2000 to 2005, on the Federal Judicial Nominating Commission for South Florida. In 2009, Crist appointed him to the Keys Judicial Nominating Commission. Scott reappointed him in 2012. He is also a former Key West city commissioner and former member of the Monroe County Tourist Development Council. If thats not enough, in 1988, then-Gov. Bob Martinez named Scales to the Florida Board of Regents (1987 to 1988). In 1988, UF named him its outstanding male graduate and inducted him into the universitys hall of fame. Among those celebrating with him Friday in Key West were former Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon, his UF roommate, who shared stories about Scales from their days as kids in Lakeland. Friday was as much about the Keys as it was about Scales. It illustrates that despite our small population, the mainland has nothing on us producing outstanding leaders. Ed Scales is just the latest, and were proud he can say hes from Monroe County (his Alabama birth notwithstanding). SCALES
Stuff is the theft of productivity and one of the biggest thieves is clutter. So how do you reduce clutter? Rule No. 1: Dont let it build up in the first place. Easier said than done, but here are some tips that should help, from the beginning to the end of the decluttering process.Keep your paper recycling bin outside. When you get mail, open it over your recycling container and toss everything you dont need the envelope your mail came in, the return envelopes (if you pay your bills online), the envelope stuffers, the unimportant parts of your multi-page bills, unwanted catalogues and so on. Dont even bring it into your house or office.FAT: This stands for file, act or toss and has long been the gold standard of decluttering. Personally, I think the act part should be broken into two pieces: Act now and Do it today. This is as much a timemanagement piece as it is anything else. Taking immediate action on every stray bit of paper that comes across your desk means youre giving up the structure of your day, surrendering your personal power by letting random papers determine what is important. You may want to set aside a certain time to deal with the important matters that dont require immediate attention. That way you can handle everything at once, being more efficient with your time, and keep your work space from getting cluttered. Once you do act on something, however, either file it or throw it away.Reduce paper. Much of your office or home clutter can be reduced if you opt for electronic bills. And some companies have started to charge extra if you want an invoice mailed to you (something you might consider if you are in business).Rearrange your workspace. View your workspace as a series of concentric circles.The innermost circle, within arms reach, contains the things you use most often. Your computer will be there. So should your phone, if you are on the horn a lot. What else do you use a lot? Include in this inner circle the files that you will use that day. The middle circle holds things you use occasionally. This may include reference materials, printer paper, etc. You know your own usage best. The outer circle is where you banish the things you rarely use. We all have these printer ink cartridges, back-up disks, cords for electronics you no longer own and so on.Rearrange your drawers.The rule above also applies to your drawers. Make sure the drawers you use the most are near your dominant hand. Take five minutes a day to clean out the years of debris that have accumulated in your drawers until you have what only you need.Inbox, schminbox. Got a lot of papers? Throw them in your inbox. At least theyre in a tidy pile, right? Until they start to overflow. And how much time do you waste sifting through your inbox, looking for just the right file or piece of paper? Use a vertical step file holder instead. They take up way less space on your desk, and because theyre graduated, you can easily see each folders label.Use the walls. My home office is very small and I have zero room for even a step file folder. So what I use instead are wall file holders. Just screw them into the wall and voila instant storage. With both these alternatives, you will still have to spend time purging. As soon as youre finished with the file, put it in the file cabinet. Do you have questions about time management, productivity or related issues?

Hot off a win against its Coral Shores High School counterpart, the Marathon High School Mock Trial team is preparing for its first trip to the state competition in the programs three-year history. Elizabeth Bayrel, an economics and human geography teacher, said its an exciting time for the seven-member team. It travels to Orlando and the Orange County Courthouse to compete against 16 other high school teams from around Florida March 6 through 9 for four rounds of competition. Bayrel described the mock case as based on doctored material from actual cases. This was a firstdegree felony case on trafficking in Oxycodone, with 248 pills found in a students vehicle. You have to prepare both sides of the case and then right before you present, you have to draw straws and decide on whether youre going to be defense or prosecution, she said. Bayerl said the team, led by captain John Galjanic and legal advisor Patrick Stevens, beat Coral Shores Feb. 10 with a prosecution performance at the Plantation Key Courthouse. The statewide competition is put on by the Florida Law Related Education Association Inc., based in Tallahassee. The team was set for recognition at a Tuesday meeting of the Monroe County School Board that started after press time.

The state season, limited to recreational anglers who have snook endorsement on their saltwater fishing license, closes April 30. Snook in the Keys are considered part of the Gulf of Mexico species stock, which allows just one legal-size fish to be harvested daily. Selling or buying snook, one of the states premier saltwater-fishing species, has been illegal for decades. Snook taken in Keys or Everglades National Park waters during the open season must measure not less than 28 or more than 33 inches total length, measured from the most forward point of the head with the mouth closed to the farthest tip of the tail with the tail compressed ... while the fish is lying on its side, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Most Keys anglers and fishing guides release all snook they catch. After a January 2010 cold snap killed untold numbers of snook, harvesting snook from the Gulf stock was banned until last Septembers short fall season. A hard-fighting fish that can weigh more than 30 pounds, snook are highly sensitive to weather extremes. They become sluggish in cold water, which renders them more vulnerable to other predator fish and humans. Snook can be caught from shore, and even can be found in fresh water.Its just the second one since 2010OUR FISHERIESKeynoter StaffCops buy bicycle for theft stingsDigging deep into the playbook, the Key West Police Department on Feb. 20 conducted a covert bicycle operation designed to catch would-be bike thieves. In 2013, the city recorded 383 bicycle thefts, spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. So heres what the police are doing: Leave a bike sitting unlocked out in public, then wait for someone to take it. When that happens, jump out and arrest them. According to a report from Officer Kevin OConnell the report, police put the yellow Cannondale 900, valued at more than $300, on the sidewalk leading up to the Staples Avenue Bridge around 5:40 p.m. Thursday. One of those arrested was Michael Farra, 49, who rode his bicycle over the bridge and passed the [Cannondale], then made a U-turn, going back. OConnell wrote that Farra then started to ride eastbound on Staples Avenue on his bicycle while holding the Cannondales left handle bar. Police stopped Farra at the next intersection. OConnell asked him if the bicycle was his. Farra reportedly said, No, it had a flat tire and [I] was going to take it home and put a tire on it. He reportedly said hes not a bike thief and that he thought the bicycle was trash. When searching Farra, they allegedly found four grams of marijuana in his pocket. He was charged with felony grand theft and misdemeanor drug possession, booked into the Monroe County Detention Center, then released. Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean confirmed the sting. There was probably an area where even more bikes than usual were being stolen.383 reported in the city during 2013KEY WESTKeynoter Staff Team heading to Tallahassee for state finals

Photos, 3B In addition to outdueling Jordan Roney, her more-heralded pitching opponent, Key West Highs Desirae Lagunas gritty dive into first base in the bottom of the eighth inning led to a 4-3 victory for the Conchs over Marathon in a softball thriller Saturday afternoon that ended with an international tie-breaker at the Back Yard.The game was tied, 2-2, after the seventh. Under the tie-breaker, each team began the eighth inning with a runner on second base and no outs.For Marathon, that was Amanda Bruland, and she quickly scored when Laguna threw wildly to first base on a sacrifice bunt by Hannah Child. After an infield hit, Laguna than retired the next three batters in a row to keep the score at 3-2. Jayla DiGennaro took second to begin the bottom of the eighth for the Conchs. Roney retired the first two hitters and appeared on the verge of victory. But Anjelika Green drove in DiGennaro with a single to tie the score at 3-3. Laguna only hours removed from her grandfathers funeral then hit a ball off first baseman Sacha Oliveras glove and dove safely into the bag as Olivera hurried to get back and make a tag. If its close and you dive, they usually call you safe, Laguna said afterward, rubbing a knee she had hurt on the play.The inning was still alive, but Roney only had to get Brooke Marsden to extend the game. Marsden, however, lofted a fly ball that fell into right field for a hit. Green scored and the celebration began. I was just trying to get the run home, said Marsden, a senior who had never had a game-winning hit.The game opened with both teams scoring a run in the first inning Marathon on doubles by Roney and Savannah Rodamer, and Key West on a double by Brooke Wood and a single by Jewls Castillo.Just settling in in the shady stands was a crowd that seemed composed of mostly Marathon rooters.
